One of the greatest and most versatile guitarists in the world, John Etheridge makes a welcome return to the Festival with his band. Their programme of originals and jazz standards makes this an absolute must for fans of melodically inspired swinging acoustic jazz.


John Etheridge formed Sweet Chorus 16 years ago as a tribute to his mentor and inspiration Stéphane Grappelli. Playing alongside John are scintillating violinist Christian Garrick, master of rhythm guitar Dave Kelbie and exceptional bass player Andy Crowdy, who together produce a potent blend that results in a dazzling performance.


“I never wanted to be a star, just a highly respected musician like John Etheridge.” Sting
